On Saturday 15 September 2012, walk for water so others don’t have to.

Lower Largo to Pittenweem

The route follows the abandoned railway and coastline to Dumbarnie wildlife reserve. This reserve is made up of calcareous dunes noted for birds, butterflies and flowers. The path climbs from Shell Bay to Kincraig Point. Along the top of these cliffs remnants of Fife’s military heritage can be seen with World War II look out posts and gun placements. This vantage point on a clear day offers commanding views both to the sea and inland over vast expanses of Fife. After Kincraig Point there is an alternative route via the ‘Chainwalk’ – an exciting and unique scramble along cliffs using chains for handrails. Suitable for fit, experienced walkers with a good head for heights. Best done east to west. The route starts at Lower Largo Temple car park and finishes at Pittenweem Harbour. There is a variety of unmade paths and rough terrain along this route so please take care.
